Aqualung . left this review about Bricklayers Arms

This is a great old fashioned boozer which on my visit sold five cask ales.
It's a small place with the bar and a wooden floored room at the front and another small room further back with a dart board that appeared to be blocked by a large sherry or wine barrel.
On my visit the beers were Bateman's XB, Tring Ramscoat, Oakham JHB, York Minster and Nottingham Rock Mild. I went for the Mild (£3.10) which was in great nick and went down a treat. On my Thursday lunchtime visit I don't recall seeing any TV screens but I may have just been wishing them away.

The Everards beers that used to be regulars have now been replaced by Batemans XB, which can be found on the smaller bar in a drinking corridor between the front and back rooms. Four other hand pumps in the front bar have an interesting variety of guest ales, often from local breweries such as Tring. The front room is in bare boards ale house style, with a couple of upended barrels as well as the usual tables and chairs. Through the corridor there is an option (on the right) to take your drinks out into the yard (sunny and crowded days only), or there's the smaller back room, or (past the toilets) the smokers yard at the back.

The landlady and regulars take pride in a review which described the pub as "quirky", but apart from the fact that almost all of the people I have met here support Luton Town, I have seen little real evidence of this. It's always very busy here on Luton Town match days, and away fans may be turned away if they are wearing colours, even if they can get the door to open.

Quinno _ left this review about The Bricklayers Arms

A destination venue for ale (though as mentioned below, the large solid exterior door does make you wonder if they are open and it requires a good shove to get through!). There were five ales on when I visited on Tuesday (Oakham JHB, Atomic Brewery Fusion and Crystal Tips, Crouch Vale Essex Boys and RCH Hewish Mild) which were in pretty good shape along with a couple of interesting keg choices as well as Stowford Press keg cider. The bar is to the left as you enter and to the right is a slightly mad souk area of books, television, fireplace, old whisky barrels and assorted nik-naks. I settled in at the bar and got chatting with a couple of the locals and the licensee which helped the ale go down easily but meant I didn’t pay much attention to the rest of the surrounds.

I liked this one and I’d make a point of coming back here another time. Combined with the English Rose, this is a good reason to come out to Luton if you fancy a short but enjoyable crawl.
